ACOR Grants

One year grants that provide short-term support to local community projects that are in keeping with the mission, vision, and direction of the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany. ACOR Grants are unique among Allegany Franciscan Ministries’ grant programs in that they do not have a geographic restriction.  Rather, they require a direct affiliation with Franciscan Sisters of Allegany or Trinity Health. There are two grant cycles a year. Read the ACOR Overview document. (ACOR Overview in Portuguese)
